Description for Ford Torino 1973

code numbers matching 429/c6 car I've just built it and beefed it up a tad.
the motor
Forged connecting rods with arp bolts
Stock nodular iron crank re machined
Forged pistons SpeedPro
Magnum timing chain ill have to check and see if its a double rolling chain again
Lunati voodoo cam, 560 lift i have the spec cards
Cylinder walls are being bored .030 over
High flow flowkooler water pump
Holley mechanical fuel pump
Aluminum 3-core radiator
Aluminum cylinder heads, they were locally machined to match a 95cc edelbrock head
Also for cylinder heads i have lunati dual valve springs to help with the bigger lift from the cam
Lunati pushrods
Weiand stealth aluminum intake mani
Holley 750 carb
The transmission is a monster c6 kit built to 800 hp and has a 3500 stall converter
The motor wont go in the car even though its a numbers matching block because the oil pan is too big so i leave the state in 2 months and its gonna need cross member frame cut out in order to make this one fit or you can replace the upgraded oil pump with a stock one and throw the stock pump back on it. The car has some rust problems because its a north carolina car but unfortunately ill probably never see the thing run. Right now ive got about 3500 in interior parts, 6500 in the motor and 2000 in the transmission and a new wiring harness is already ran and mostly wired up it was just waiting on the motor to get installed to finish that portion up. Open to offers cash talks i have the title in hand as well.
Ill send photos to anyone who is interested of how the car looks now. Also open to trades. Price is somewhat negotiable. Text for questions atshow contact info, from there we could arrange a call usually I'm at work
